    Oh sisters! In this final episode of Season 7, Cait and Kara are talking to the author of one of their favorite books - Katrina Kenison.

    The sisters and Katrina discuss her book Mitten Strings for God, and how it impacted Cait and Kara as young moms. And they get to find out more about Katrina's philosophy of slowing down, embracing the ordinary and being present with our kids.

Fun and Focused

I totally binge listened to these wonderful ladies on a 6 hour drive to Valencia! Thankful for WiFi so I could download even more episodes for the return drive! I finally feel like if I decide that homeschooling is the path for us that I can tackle it with confidence!

LOVE the sisters!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These ladies have helped change our lives. Between this and the Wild +Free podcast, I’ve found the courage and inspiration to homeschool my children. These wonderful ladies make homeschooling seem not so daunting and within the realm of possibility. I’m always laughing throughout the podcast, because they’re having a good time and it’s just fun! Thank you!!! I love this podcast and recommend it to every homeschooling mama I know!!!

THE BEST!

I found the sisters a few years ago, and it completely changed the perspective and flow with which I homeschool my kids. A couple years in and each episode leaves me feeling like I’ve left from a coffee date with friends, being refreshed and renewed! Thank you ladies for being exactly YOU! You help me know I’m not alone in this thing, and with each new friend interested in homeschooling, I steer them here because it’s just SO GOOD! Love to you both!
